If you are an experience design professional passionate about Search, you must attend the Enterprise Search Summit in NYC May 11-12. I have spoken on designing social search in the enterprise as well as designing search experiences a few times at this conference – and it really is the best conference around this problem space. Our good friend Peter Morville will be one of the keynote speakers talking about Search & Discovery Design Patterns. Again - this is pretty cool. As many of you know, designing elegant, effective, useful and usable search systems is what separates the goats from the kids - it's the Lady Gaga of ux problem spaces. I will be there in full goat regalia deconstructing companies that don't "get it" or clueless pontificators that think, erroneously, that search and findability is a technology problem space and not an ux problem space.The probability of me pulling punches is near nill. Don't be a schmuck hoping for a live tweeting of the event - come in person to smell the sulfur.
